Ruth and Michel Steinberger graciously opened their art-filled home to more than 40 American Friends for an opportunity to hear about recent breakthroughs in genetics and hearing from Prof. Karen Avraham of TAU's Department of Human Molecular Genetics and Biochemistry.

Introducing Prof. Avraham, Ruth Steinberger stressed the need for scholarships to support TAU students and scholars — Israel's most valuable natural resource. Prof. Avraham then spoke about gene mutations and new treatments for deafness and hearing loss. As Vice Dean of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine, she concluded with a discussion of the university's dedication to reversing Israel "brain drain."

Following the presentation, guests enjoyed an elegant dessert reception and the opportunity to socialize amidst the Steinbergers' fascinating collection of impressionistic and modern art.
